Still of the Production Black Cyborg

or If I Had a Heart for Whom Would It Beat

2017, Solo

„But they fed me so many new memories...“ (New Titans #128) Victor Stone aka Cyborg is one of the few Black super heroes in the DC Comics universe. In the Teen Titans and Justice League series, he embodies numerous stereotypes and fantasies by "white supremacy" regarding the "Black man". Yet aside from racist discourses, Victor Stone also represents a specific utopia – he is a cyborg, literally a shining example of new, technically improved humanity. In Black Cyborg, Berlin choreographer Christoph Winkler and African-American dancer-performer and DJ Zen Jefferson expose the character’s matrix, as they deconstruct and translate it into another corporeal symbolism – into liquid body language.
